Fashion // Dahlia

Hmmm, what to wear when it’s 36 degrees in April? On this day, I had a cute outfit planned but alas, it had snowed and hailed overnight and even though the day was beautiful, it was windy and freezing temps.

Instead, I styled this half spring/half winter outfit that kept me warm and kept me from feeling like I was still plunged into winter. And since I’m not buying anything right now, these are all re-styled pieces from the last year!

My life has been pretty stressful lately, with long work hours and various responsibilites that have been stretching me thin. As always, styling outfits and indulging this passion is an outlet. I get to share that passion here, and I’m grateful for that! Hope you like this. Let me know in the comments what you wear during unseasonably cold days in spring!

Fashion // Play my music, watch you leave

This is my excited-for-spring, Easter outfit. The trees are BLOOMING in full force, and when spring comes around I can’t help but get giddy for all the clothes I shall wear. I like how this outfit is a mix of dark, winter pieces and lighter, airy spring pieces. I also love the color combination of burgundy and this deep, rosy coral. Finding this color combo made me v. happy. Hope you like it!

Fashion // The past and pending

Lately, in an effort to not shop so much, I’ve been trying to repurpose old things. In that spirit, last week I found this dress that I bought last year but never wore! I tend to buy things on a whim and then wonder if I can pull it off. Luckily, I really liked the way this shirt dress looked, paired with a thick black belt with gold accents. I added more gold highlights here and there to reinforce the look, and with the Posie K lip color, I think I tied it together well!

Also: STRAIGHT HAIR. I just had it cut, and so I had that new-haircut swagger. Instant confidence, am I right?

Fashion | Summer Wine

This is probably one of the last actual summer outfits I’ll do this year. August is almost over. 🙁

Instead of shopping at the end of the season I tried to do some restyling with old pieces. These shorts are from Forever 21 but they never fit me before this year, and the top was cut from a dress that didn’t fit! This outfit happened because I pulled random things out of my closet and found that they worked — surprisingly.

Fashion | All that light follows the cracks

Pleats + lace. I’m still on this neutral trend, but I couldn’t help bringing in a soft color into this outfit. I love the swish of this skirt and the wide pleats. On my feet are my fave spring/summer shoes from Nasty Gal, bought last year. They’re great for day and night and as a bonus point, they’re also really walkable, providing I don’t lace them too tight. I wear them almost every day in the summer.

All of my tops I’ve worn in the past few weeks are slightly tinted blue. Hair problems 🙂
